Register for a New CAGE Code

A CAGE code is mandatory to register your company to the government in its procurement system. The CAGE record also gives the government the information it needs to pay you for goods or services you provide to them. The SAM system controls the CAGE code and is the system you use to register and update your CAGE record. Access to a CAGE record is a two-step process.

  1. You must identify yourself to SAM, by creating a User Account
  2. You then use your User Account identity to create an Entity Record for your company.

Following are the steps you need to follow to get a User Account and to register your company in SAM and receive a CAGE code

  1. Create a User Account by using the Create A User Account link provided on the SAM home page.
  2. Make sure that you have a DUNS number and that the address in the DUNS registration is correct. If it is not accurate, make the needed corrections (click here to see our DUNS REGISTRATION instructions). SAM will cross validate information you enter in SAM with
    information in your DUNS record. You will also need your TIN (Tax
    Identification Number) and your Taxpayer Name (company name associated
    with your TIN).
